Buck’n-R-Ranch Animal Rescue, Inc. (BRRARI) is a non-profit, volunteer based no-kill animal rescue. Our mission is and always has been centered around our dedication to the saving, rehabilitation and rehoming of homeless and abandoned animals in need.
Buck’n-r-Ranch was established in 2010, as a 501(c)3 non-profit “no kill” domestic animal rescue and sanctuary. BRRARI was established after co-founders Don and Bonnie Buckner found an abandoned 15 year old cat at a storage facility. She was so malnourished and so diminutive, at first sight, she was thought to be much younger than her 15 years. Despite her deplorable living conditions, she approached them with a look of happiness in her eyes. They took her home, had her vetted, and called her Olive. Olive lived on for another safe, happy and fulfilling year with the Buckner’s. The incident lit a fuse for Don and Bonnie to help domestic animals who are neglected and abused. Today, BRRARI is a Colorado (PACFA) licensed rescue, currently operating on 22 acres in Franktown, Colorado.
